Feb 20, 2014

I'm four days into my anti-inflammatory diet. I definitely feel better than I did this time last week. I'm still not healed but I wouldn't expect to be in four short days. I have only eaten out twice. Once at my dad's restaurant, where I never worry about what I'm eating. And the other was an impromptu dinner with my parents at Yardhouse. I definitely prefer cooking and eating at home. It really helps when you're the one in control of what you're putting in your body. I have noticed my hunger levels have dropped a lot and I'm thinking it's the extra protein I'm consuming. 

For the last four days, this is what I ate:

Monday, February 17th
Breakfast: 2 protein pancakes, coffee with almond milk and coconut oil (don't knock it 'til you try it)
Lunch: Grilled steak, brown rice and 6 peice veggie roll made with brown rice from Sansai Japanese Grill (my dad's restaurant)
Snack: apple with chocolate peanut butter
Dinner: Baked chicken breast with homemade vegan pesto, baked polenta and peas
Dessert: Banana coconut chia pudding

Tuesday, February 18th
Breakfast: 2 protein pancakes and 2 chicken sausage links, coffee with almond milk and coconut oil
Snack: apple and 8 slices of salami
Lunch: Leftover chicken with pesto, peas, celery and natural peanut butter
Dinner: Cashew chicken with peas and less than 1/4 cup of brown rice
Dessert: Banana coconut chia pudding

Wednesday, February 19th
Breakfast: 2 protein pancakes, 2 chicken sausage links and green tea
Snack: blueberries and blackberries
Lunch: Leftover cashew chicken, celery, natural peanut butter, blueberries and blackberries
Snack: Apple
Dinner: Pesto bacon wrapped chicken breast, 8 slices of salami, celery and natural peanut butter

Thursday, February 20th
Breakfast: 2 protein pancakes, 2 chicken sausage links, blueberries, coffee with almond milk and coconut oil
Snack: apple and 8 slices of salami
Snack: LaraBar
Dinner: Turkey burger sliders (I only ate the turkey patty) and french fries (from Yardhouse)
Dessert: Coconut milk ice cream with non dairy chocolate chips

When I completely gave up dairy again a couple weeks ago I promised myself I would not eat Quest Bars anymore. Let me tell you, I LOVE Quest Bars, especially the chocolate chip cookie dough flavor. I would eat them instead of dessert at night. But they do contain milk so I wanted to see what would happen when I cut them out. I miss them tons! I also miss whey protein. My boyfriend has mint chocolate chip and 50/50 bar flavors. For now I will pretend my peanut chocolate fudge raw plant based protein is a delicious Reese's Peanut Butter Cup! 

I've gotten a request for a grocery list from a friend who is also trying to avoid gluten. I thought I'd include it here in case anyone else would be interested in seeing it. I'm pretty sure I could have gotten all my groceries (except my protein powder) from Sprouts but for some reason I love making several trips.

3 lb. bag of Fuji Apples
Bob's Mill Gluten Free All Purpose Flour
Jif To Go Natural Peanut Butter

So Delicious Coconut Milk Non Dairy Dessert
Justin's Chocolate Hazelnut Butter (because I'm obsessed with Nutella but I can't eat it)
